A Green Heron (Three Photographs)

It’s hard to tell if this Green Heron was going for a fish or a hairdo. The intense colors and contrast in these photos come from shooting at ISO 400. For a very long time it was my standard starting point. Now I have shifted to auto ISO on the D500 when shooting birds, and often the colors are more toned down. But understanding that this is the case I can shift back and forth in my settings as I chose how to shoot. It’s just one of those things that resulted from trying new things, learning new features on my camera. Well worth the effort!
